Analysis on Groups [MA5064] - SS 15

News     Timetable     Course Material     People

The theory of topological groups combines the local concept of 'nearness' (given by a topology) with the global concept of 'homomgeneity' (given by a group law). The interplay between these two structures results in a rich theory that finds applications in

This course covers the basic results and techniques of the following topics:

The theory will be accompanied by illustrating examples, and exercises.
